Hi Gemz98, We are genuinely sorry your experience with the food wasn't as you'd hoped. The pies are from a new supplier so we will be forwarding your comments to them to review, however the mash should have been creamy and smooth so I will...More

Food a notch above usual "pub grub" but still reasonably priced - and a good range of real ales. Took advantage of their main course and 2-for-1 pudding offers while sitting outside in the sunshine (a rare opportunity this summer).

Best to book in advance, but they will try their best to get you sat down if you just turn up and want food when they are busy. Themed nights add to the attraction of eating here. For example, Friday is fish night, and you...More

Here at the Green Man, we pride ourselves on delivering a great customer experience within our fantastic pub. Our staff are looking forward to serving you with our new fantastic range of drinks and substantial new menu of pub classics. We have everything covered. Enjoy relaxing in our bar trying our new cask ales whilst watching the live sports events, or out in the large beer garden with a refreshing bottle of fizz. Our new menu will certainly not disappoint and our various food offers will ensure you come back throughout the week. The little ones are catered for also with a children's menu to keep them full and free crayons to colour in pictures. We love to see babies and children at the table with their parents, however we are not a high energy kids pub and children will need to be supervised by an adult at all times both inside the pub and in the garden area.
